Exploring the Map of Grizzly Bear Habitat
Grizzly Bears are very mysterious to many parts of the world. Because they are so limited to a small region in North America, it’s no wonder why. Looking at the above Map of Grizzly Bear Habitat, you can see that Grizzly Bears are most common in Northern Canada, Alaska, and a small part of the Northern USA.
The name “Grizzly” comes from the appearance of their fur. Grizzly Bears are often a dark brown color, but may vary from black to a light cream color. The long hairs on their backs called guard hairs, give them a “grizzled” look.
Grizzly Bears tend to be quite solitary, but are not territorial. You may see grizzlies in the wild feeding together, but they are not likely travelling as a group. Female grizzly bears will care for their cubs for 2-3 years. The female cubs will often have a home base close to their mothers, while the males will venture further.
Wondering where are the best places to see Grizzly Bears in the wild?
Western Canada including British Columbia, Alberta and the Yukon are all popular places to observe Grizzly Bears in the wild. We recommend joining a responsible tour company for your own safety, as well as the wellbeing of the bears.
